Hi, my name is Joan Heinrich and I am so excited to be beginning my 6th year teaching music at Lakewood Elementary. I can’t wait to start making music with all of the students at LES. Before teaching at LES, I taught Pre-K (for 3 years) and Pre-K music (for 7 years) at Blessed Beginnings, Prince of Peace’s Mother’s Day Out and Preschool. During this time I also directed our church’s Angel Choir. This choir was composed of children ages Kindergarten – 8th grade. Before working at my church, I taught Pre-K at Epps Island in Klein ISD. I graduated from Stephen F. Austin State University with an Interdisciplinary Studies degree focusing on Early Childhood and a minor in Music Education. I attended the University of Houston’s Kodaly Institute and received my certificate in August of 2015. I have been a cantor at my church for many years serving at Masses, funerals and weddings. In the past I have been the VBS music team leader and still serve as our Sonshine Days summer program’s music team leader. Music is such an important part of my life and I am honored to have the opportunity to share my love of music with the children of LES.
When I am not teaching, I love spending time with my friends and family. I have been blessed with a wonderful husband, Dave, and 4 beautiful girls. Allison is starting her 3rd year at U of H, Michelle is a freshman at UT in Austin, Claire is a junior at TMHS and Teresa is a 7th grader at WWJH.
I look forward to meeting all new students to LES and seeing all returning students.
If you ever have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
